Building upon the enormous success of the technology conference held at Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf last year, An International Symposium, Instructional Technology and Education of the Deaf, will be held June 23-27, 2003, presented by leaders around the world.

Sponsored by NTID and The Nippon Foundation of Japan, next year’s symposium will provide a forum for educators supporting deaf and hard-of-hearing learners to discuss information relative to current and future innovations and the latest developments using educational media and technology in the teaching/learning process.

This conference will benefit the following groups: professionals who serve as K-12 and college teachers or administrators; technical experts such as multimedia developers, curriculum designers, vocational rehabilitation professionals and captioning specialists; as well as anyone involved in distance education, accessibility issues, and assistive and augmentative technologies.

There will be several pre-conference workshops held June 23-24, and the symposium itself will take place June 25-27. The early registration fee is $200, otherwise $250; and students pay $125. The fee for full-day pre-conference workshops is $150 each.
